The Val di Funes is very popular for its picturesque and unspoiled Alpine landscape. The towns of northern Italy vanish in forests and meadows, above which tower the white tops of the Dolomites. The whole region lies at the altitude of 500 to 1400 m above sea level. Right in the middle of the Val di Funes, you can visit the village Funes that has about 2,000 inhabitants and buy souvenirs and postcards there. The nearest tourist information center is located in the nearby city Chiusa . From there, it is best to find a connection to the Val di Funes because motorway A22 connecting northern Italy and Austria passes there.
There are many tourist trails in the Val di Funes. The most popular is probably the Adolf Munkel Trail (Via Adolf Munkel) , which runs directly to the foothills of the limestone peaks that dominate the valley. The educational trail Zannes (Sentiero didattico di Zannes) will lead you through the nature park Puez Odle, which neighbors with the Val di Funes.
